At first glance, these objects may look like planets but they are actually photos of the bottoms of frying pans.
Everything I know is a lie
This took me longer than usual for two reasons:
1) My right eye is notably deteriorated from a stigma or something else- hopefully not!- giving me tremendous eye strain and ache whilst I work digitally. Anyhow, won’t get answers til June/July now apparently.
2) This was a tad more experimental than other pictures I’d done in the past.
I wanted to portray a sense of proportion and dynamic depth whilst in keeping with my minimalistic angular style but also using small details to enforce that even more e.g. The Flash’s silhouette becomes more flat colour entirely as his body seems to be much further away.
I also tried using different brushes to add texture to my usually flat designs with mark making techniques scanned in. It was interesting to see what I could do with them, in this case it was just a few lines drawn with a ‘scrapey’ pen to indicate speed lines as movement- school boy stuff really.
At this point even though it is literally painful to work at the moment I’m doing some stuff on paper, stuff I’ve been working on for a while, a bigger project which I should be able to post an update pretty soon.
For now this is a step in the right direction even if it’s become a pretty slow process.
Here’s a quick sketch of a Native American-esque She Orc
Just another surprisingly good first sketch that I hopelessly try to follow up with lesser stuff.
Anyway- think that’s 2 sketches uploaded in 2 days! Who’da thunk it?!
2 sketches motherf**ker!
So, the scanner I use has been out of commission for a while but s now up and running again, so-
I watched Django Unchained yesterday and was throughly impressed.
Consequently I had a cowboy sketching session today- whilst listening to ‘Western’ soundtracks of course- and the first drawing that came out was strangely good…for me and my own criticisms obviously.
The rest, unsurprisingly, weren’t very good at all but here’s the first sketch anyway.
“Beauty and the Beast” by kelseymichele
This art is so good.
Oh my gods, he’s a deer. DEERBEAST.
He is glorious.
I love him.
OHMYGOD SOMEONE I FOLLOW REBLOGGED MY THESIS WORK AND 10,000+ NOTES GUYS?? WHOA?!?!
thank you all so much! i can’t right now. i can’t. i worked so hard on this collection my senior year. i’m so glad it’s appreciated. c,:
(also, i recently got a request to add the last three images to my Society 6 shop, so expect a link to that later this week!)
Agh, a deer or other herbivore would creep me out so much more than a predator Beast. I mean, I’m cool with eyes- front meat eaters. My best friends and many of my relations are eyes-front meat eaters. But black-eyed ruminants? Those things’ll mess you UP.
Travel back in time! Pitch meets the newly-assembled Guardians in “Pitch Black” by Rise of the Guardians story artist Johane Matte (rufftoon) and colored by visual development artists Perry Maple and WoonYoung Jung
Big collaborative work between me, WoonYung and Perry. Big shout out to these guys, couldn’t have done it without their help!!!
Ok, so this is massively late, but it took a while fiddling with it until I was happy, and I went away for the weekend (to Sherwood Forest actually - it was very nice thank you!) but here’s my Bond picture - finally.
Tried a few things with lettering this time, including a failed attempt to squeeze the lettering into a Martini-shaped speech bubble - it didn’t work, but it’s all a learning experience right?
The idea behind this piece is inspired by my own reaction to this particular scene in 2006’s James Bond prequel Casino Royale, in which Bond manages to both intimidate his poker-playing nemesis by ordering a rather grand drink, and impress the glamorous girl by naming it after her. True, it’s a great scene, but as someone who’s worked behind a bar, all I could think was… what a pretentious prick!
Just to make it clear, I think Casino Royale is a brilliant film, and Daniel Craig actually makes a great Bond, just next time, keep the cocktail simple ok? Or order a beer for gods sake :P
Love Daniel Craig’s smug-ass face in this.
